Found at the northwest of North Caicos, the lonely 2 miles (3.2 kilometres) long Sandy Point Beach is an interesting place to explore. Some sections of this beach is rocky, yet decent sections can be found.
There are two general regions of Sandy Point Beach; the extreme northwest point on North Caicos, which is accessed from the marina area, and the secluded eastern half.
Parrot Cay can be seen directly across the channel at Sandy Point.
The eastern portion of Sandy Point Beach features a unique landscape, with groves of the small-in-stature thatch palm on top of semi-lithified dune cliff.
Likewise, if you’re planning a day trip to North and Middle Caicos, Sandy Point makes sense as the final stop of the day.
Due to being sheltered from the typical east southeast trade winds, Sandy Point Beach (and the adjacent Sandy Point Marina) can have a sand flea (biting midge) and mosquito problem at times. Although long sleeve clothing and insect repellent can improve the situation, it’s best to simply try one of the other excellent North Caicos beaches when the pests are prevalent.
